The trail is complete with one very minor exception. There is a spot east of Wolcott village were a rockslide has meant additional construction and a delay in opening the entire trail. One note: Someone posted a review about parking and a trailhead in St. Albans. That confused individual was on the Missisquoi Valley Rail Trail, not this one.
We love this trail and have done all of the finished sections many times. Our goal is to bike from end to end ( and back again), staying overnight in Morrisville area. Really looking forward to it!
My family goes out to Shaw park often and get right on the trail. We can’t wait for the trail to extend past our house in Steep Falls!
Awesome ride on ebikes. Late I the fall season so there was no traffic on the trails. Paved and clear, easy ride. Well worth it for the views.
The trail is great Awesome views the up hills balance out the down hills. Only issue is a lot of ignorant people that walk 4 abreast and you have to almost stop to get around them. Next trip back I think I’ll bring an air horn ¿¿
It’s fairly narrow in most spots, but very quiet, and serene.
Great trail that was an easy ride ..
Rode only 10+ miles. Started at Cambridge Junction covered bridge parking lot. Headed East past Dog Head Falls, a must stop. Very pretty flat trail. River, bridges, cows, falls. Mix of sun and tree cover.
Definitely a challenge but so fun! Start at the flume end so you get the hills done in the first half. Beautiful views of the basin and echo lake.
If you’re going North on 93, don’t go all the way to Exit 40, Route 115. Instead get off at Route 3 East and follow it to Henzel Road as directed. (Note: There is no sign for Henzel Road.) You’ll save about 30 minutes of drive time but miss the quaint village of Bethlehem.
The trail itself is lovely but a little rocky for this 70 year.
Only need to know that the sign in St.Albans telling you to park on the trail means just that. The first 200' of the Trail are its parking lot in St. Albans.
For those of us who have said all our lives "never park on the trail" we need to learn new tricks.
Sections of the trail are badly wash boarded, enough to almost knock you off your seat. Every quarter- to half-mile there's a metal gate across most of the trail, with a narrow passage to the side. The surface of the passage is large gravel, usually combined with deep ruts. Parts of the trail are reasonably graded; it seemed that most are too rocky for smooth riding. We rode from Littleton to Lisbon, 20 miles round-trip. It felt like 50. Having said all that, if you're up for the beating, it's a pretty ride, lots of shade, some nice river views.
